Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Hey wait a sec, I've always gotten the impression that the Gemini is a difficult kite to learn on. Not true?

Not true. Given he has other kites he should be fine with a gem. Personally I would go with deepspace over the gem

Jegust like to to say that the deal with Gemini's is just about done so I would just say I have think about this and I think that as someone said you cover all the winds with there's kites :Pjust can't wait to get them I read that you should just use one kite til you master it but I sure it more fun trying as many as I can    Grin so that what I intend to do that a look at what I hope is a dun deal http://fracturedaxel.co.uk/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=12128

Sure I will is it right what I have read that Gemini's are classed as old school what the difference between old school and new school as the Gemini can do all of the tricks that the new kites can and sum much better so what should be classed as  old school and why. Little confused on this one or is when a kite has so many years of production it becomes old school Roll Eyes?? (

Basically, Old school tricks are mostly rotational tricks - Lazy susan, 540's, slot machines etc.  New School tricks are pitch based tricks - yoyo's, yo-fades etc.  The early Gemini's came out a few years ago and were not as 'pitchy',  they have been redesigned a couple of times since then and the newer Gemini's ( which are what I think you are looking at ) are much more pitch friendly.  They are not on the same level of pitch ability as say the Benson Deepspace or JoE Talon , but still a good all round kite.

I have a new(ish) Gemini, and it rolls up better than most kites. I've never flown the Talon or Deep Space, but my Gem (2010) can out-yoyo every kite in my bag except the Seven. The only trick that is difficult for me on the Gem is anything turtle-based. It's not that it's more difficult to fly, it just requires a special touch. I liked my first one so much, that I got two !

A Gem in a fade is a joy to behold... and just the best Crazy Copters ever.
